what to do when you feel tired. every. single. day.

How to overcome your need for approval

We all want to feel liked and accepted.  As humans, this is what led to our survival; especially in prehistoric times, being rejected from the group posed a real threat to people’s lives.  Because of the extreme consequences, our brains and behaviour have been conditioned to avoid disapproval from others at all costs.  So much so, that researchers in recent years have discovered social rejection activates parts of the brain that are linked to physical pain.

What to do when you feel tired. every. single. day.

Self-care is one of those buzzwords that’s heard everywhere and has probably started to get on your nerves a bit.  And that’s fine.

4 things that are sabotaging your growth mindset

Have you ever wondered how people who have less skill and talent achieve more than those who do?  It boils down to mindset. Mindset matters, as success begins in the mind and not out on the playing field.  As Napoleon Hill said, “Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”  Carol Dweck,…

Spring forward: renewing your purpose

Ironically, my path to a new life occurred during early spring of last year.  Yes, it was during the season of rebirth and a literal time change that I sensed a fervent desire and need for a change of my own―a grand shift in my everyday existence and career.   A Life of Wonder I…
